The economic boom of Southeast China has given both the region and its language an unprecedented importance. This volume presents an analysis of modern Cantonese, it describes the consonants, vowels and tones of the contemporary language and examines the structure of the Cantonese syllable and the types of changes that can occur when the syllables are strung together in words and phrases.
